Teaching PCs To Play Accompaniment Music

from the sounds-good dept

Teaching a computer to accompany a human musician is apparently no easy task. However, here’s the story of one guy who has built a system that not only accompanies a human musician, but also learns from them and can predict how they’ll play certain notes in order to better accompany them in the same way that a real human musician would. Now, the creator of the program is hoping that it will “pass the musical Turing test” where listeners won’t be able to tell that a computer is accompanying.
